DITRADE(Garry Marshall): As he often does in his movies, Garry Marshall cast many of his family members in small roles in this movie: Reed's coworker Nikki is played by Marshall's daughter Kathleen Marshall; Mr. Schwabbe is played by his son Scott Marshall; grandchildren Sam Marshall and Lily Marshall-Fricker play "Soccer Son" and Lily, respectively; wife Barbara Marshall plays the nurse who tells Julia where Harrison is eating dinner; and niece Tracy Reiner plays a French photographer. Marshall also shot a scene with his sister, director Penny Marshall, in it, but it didn't make the final cut.

Kathy Bates originally played Frankie in the play "Frankie and Johnny at the Clair de Lune," which was turned into the film Frankie and Johnny (1991), directed by Garry Marshall. This was filmed before Misery (1990) became a hit and turned Bates into a well-known actress, so she was not cast in the film version. In this film, she finally works with Marshall.
